Oscars Point Finger at Studio for Not Inviting ‘Compton’ Cast

The Oscars are always a buzzing topic. This year, however, the buzz has been because of a controversial (and glaring) lack of Black and Brown faces on the nominees list.
For one, we are over here offended that Sylvester Stallone received a nod for supporting actor in Creed, envisioned and directed by Ryan Coogler.  Our forever bae Michael B. Jordan also received a nomination for nada.
Same sad story  for Straight Outta Compton, where only the White writers received recognition.
Adding insult to injury, Interwebs went rampant when reports came out that the Straight Outta Compton cast wasn’t even invited to the ceremony. Today, the Academy tossed blame over to Universal Pictures, the studio behind the successful box-office film.
That’s just shady.
